Haney will bring his WBC title against Gamboa Yuriorkis to the line live on DAZN at Hard Rock Live at the Seminole Hard Rock Hotel & Casino in Hollywood, Florida. This is the second title defense for Haney, who has not fought since November 2019 when he made a unanimous decision on Alfredo Santiago. Haney had shoulder surgery shortly after the fight and had plenty of time to recover as the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic obliterated some of his plans for fights earlier in the year.
Now, days before its 22nd birthday, “The Dream” can’t wait to get back in the ring. And Haney (24-0, 15 KOs) vows not to make the mistake of taking Gamboa lightly.
“Yuriokis Gamboa is a dangerous and experienced fighter,” said Haney. “He’s a former world champion and he’s been with some of the best in the ring. He injured Terence Crawford with a big shot so his power cannot be ignored. He defeated Orlando Salido who defeated Vasiliy Lomachenko. Less than a year ago he brought Gervonta Davis into the 12th round, which nobody has been able to do before. Gamboa is a true warrior and I don’t take him lightly.
“I named all of the top names and finally found someone to challenge me for my title,” he continued. “I intend to make a statement in this fight. My hunger is on another level. It’s time to show the world who the best fighter in boxing is and that’s me! ”
While newly crowned lightweight world champions Teofimo Lopez Jr., Davis, the WBA (Regular) lightweight defending champion, and Ryan Garcia have a lot to say in the division, there’s no doubt about Haney’s sheer boxing skills. That being said, Gamboa will keep an eye on the surprise he didn’t get against Davis. Gamboa is also being operated on to repair the torn Achilles he suffered against Davis.
Will Haney make the statement that he longs or will 38-year-old Gamboa prove that he still has a lot to offer sweet science?
